Can anyone tell me why doctors always say no when you ask them if you can have a few cocktails or a glass of wine with dinner? I know most doctors are anti alcohol but they never tell you the reason why alcohol is bad for you while you are being treated for cancer.
It's the 4th of July and I sure would enjoy a few beers while I have the BBQ going and a few cocktails once in awhile before diner. I am between treatments now. I finished my chemo and radiation a few weeks ago and will start a second round of chemo on the 11th of July. I do drink lots of water during the day so dehydration is not a problem. I did stop all alcohol intake for the seven weeks I was doing chemo and radiation but would like to get back to normal and have a few drinks once in awhile with my friends.
